Description: Charles Camoin (French, 1879-1965), "Le Jardin de Pigonnet, Aix en Provence", oil on canvas, signed lower right, pencil-titled, "M. Gadin, Couleurs et Toiles, Paris" stamp and "Christie's, New York" labels en verso, 21 1/2 in. x 25 3/4 in., framed with artist and title plaque. Provenance: Christie's, London, Mar. 19, 1991, lot 43; Northgate Gallery, Chattanooga, TN; a Tennessee Collection. Note: Charles Camoin was part of the infamous group, along with Henri Matisse, André Derain, and Jean Puy, who exhibited their artwork in the 1905 Salon d’Automne in Paris, where the term “Fauves” was notoriously coined by the shocked and disgusted art critic, Louis Vauxcelles. Vauxcelles, in seeing the bold and strident canvases, declared that they were the works of “wild beasts” or fauves; hence Fauvism was born. Camoin’s ties to Aix-en-Provence can be traced back to 1901, when he was stationed there for military service and developed what would be a life-long friendship with Paul Cézanne. In the lot presented here, Camoin’s dedication to the Fauvist style is evident in the thick brushstrokes and simplified forms of the flora in the garden. He enhances the natural vibrancy of the scene by utilizing overly saturated hues. Ref.: “Vit et Oeuvre.” Charles Camoin. www.charles-camoin.com. Accessed Oct. 23, 2016.
